524) Is it Bad to be Good?!

Is it bad to be good? Is it good to be bad?
To be ... or not to be.... that is not the question, to be what is the question!!

I once read an article that can summarized as follows:

Remember that in most cases, life isn't fully fair. Therefore the best people in terms of ability don't always get to the top. If you are the best person, that's bad news - if not, then it could be an opportunity.

If you are the best person, will you let's be a bad news for you. Never!
I am believer that great men create their own destiny. There are always risks with turning-point decisions, but without risks how can you make a difference.

If you are the best, keep fighting till you prove you are get what you deserve in or out side the Organization, and if you are not the best, you have to work hard to be so, coz no matter what, time you stay on the top, people will always remember that you weren't the right person in the right place unless you prove so.

Have a nice weekend,

I believe in (en Allah la yode3 ajr mn a7sn 3amla).

Hard work + strong will + patience = great success.

I think en el mawdo3 just a matter of time no more, you may need time to prove yourself in the organization but sooner or later you will be appreciated according to your work.
w asln now there is no place for those who are bad.

I heard a phrase in an Arabic T.V series that I admired a lot, I believe in it, the series is Mahmoud el Masry " ely tomoo7oh yeb2a mowazaf so3'ayar 7ayeb2a mowazaf so3'ayar, we ely nefsoh yeb2a 7aga kebeera 7ayeb2a 7aga kebeera, we ana nefsy almes el sama be edaya", see?, if you are working on your dream, sure you will achieve it, it depends on the size of your dreams, so if best people didn't reach the top that is in my opinion coz they didn't dream about the top, though god gave them the ability to reach it, but they didn't use it, as talents and abilities are tools which are useless without enthusiasm , hard work and persistence.
On the other hand, people who are not that much talented can exceed our expectation if they are fighters, and we see many everyday who reach the top while this result was unexpected ,then we stand frozen and surprised while all what we are saying (yewda3 seroh fe ad3af 7’al2oh)
No rules concerning this issue, we can’t say best people don’t always get the top, if they couldn’t get the top so they are not the best people, best people are those who are fighters, (as long as they are fighting and exerting efforts they will get all what they want) this is the only rule I know.

Noly PATIENCE is the word as hard work and strong will may just lead to disappointment.

P.S> where is Mona?

Mona said...

Hey Omar, Thanks for checking in.
I have been digesting and metabolizing some of thoughts that came up for me the last few posts.
How is your Sunday going so far?

Mona said...

This post reminds me of a poem (prayer) by Mother Tersa.

The poem goes as follows:

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.

Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.

Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.

Hi Omar:

With my respect to your point of view but I have a different one, when i mentioned those three I really meant them coz they are true if you noticed or read any biography for any successful person you will find those three were his reasons for this success.

Concering DISAPPOINTMENT fa we are humans w tabe3y sometimes we will get disappointed from certain things but I still believe that at the end it's your option whether you turn this negative feelings into positive attitude and consider it a push to put you back on the right track you drew for yourself, or to give up and start moaning your bad luck.

Great dreams come true but to those who have those three like Thomas Eidson as an example, he failed many times but he worked hard, didn't give up and waited and finally he did it.

Finally I believe that QUALIFIED PEOPLE who are doing their best, always have their place and achieve their goals any where and any time.

" Many of life's failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up ". Thomas Edison.

Sorry for writing all this long comment but I liked to explain my point of view.

P.S: this is a very nice poem ya Mona.
